King Legba & The Loas - Back From The Dead

King Legba & The Loas
Back From The Dead
by Craig Rider at 16 May 2019, 1:31 PM

Metal maniacs, rejoice! I am proud to present to you: KING LEGBA & THE LOAS; signed via Czar Of Revelations, hailing from Switzerland grounds - performing Garage Rock/Rock 'n' Roll (or Voodoo Undead Rock 'n' Roll, in their own words), on their debut album entitled: "Back From The Dead" (released 22nd of March, 2019).

Since formation in 2011; the trio in question have an EP, and this here debut album entitled: "Back From The Dead". 8 tracks ranging at around 32:44; KING LEGBA & THE LOAS arrange an intricately designed formula of hard-hitting Garage Rock/Rock 'n' Roll amalgamations, the titular track begins the record – conveying amplified adrenaline & boisterously bouncy crunchiness. Delivering concrete gnarliness in which ultilizes prodegiously vehement versatility; sonically seamless solidity, and a blistering barrage of frenzied flamboyancy…rambunctiously stampeding with quintessential manifestations. Quaking with meticulous rhythms, relentlessly raw virtuosity that speeds with frolicking haste like a charging bulldozer raging with rampaging slams of steely swerve… screeching with melodious perseverence.

Consisting of Marco Grementieri on vocals/bass; the frontman demonstrates complexly constructive distinction of catchiness, distinguishable pipes of profusely robust vengeance & an audibly adroit attribute of pumping tempos. "Ghost Train" injects an infectiously groovy fabrication of creatively diverse dexterity; as Tobi Glanzmann distributes a diligently dynamic flair of riffs and solos, as well as a consistently detailed energy…fused with electrical chugs and galloping grandures. "Voodoo Witch" embellishes on experimental firepower; crafting excelling executions of grungy finesse, a fluidly distorted sound production…fuelled immersion & contrasting harmonious hymns in which bombast into rapidly swift nimbleness – transistioned with thunderous pursuits of persistence & professionalism.

Silvio Spadino on the drums; hammers, batters and pounds his set with pulverizing thumps that stomp with prestigious qualities…"Moonchild" supplies potentially talented swagger; razor-sharp skill, stoner-esquire infused blues rock mixed with psychedelic yet modernized with old-school stabilty. "Resist The Gods" is an originally memorable song; styled with a culminated converge of sleazy stoner rock/punk elements, implementing inventive juices of jumpy jolts that shock and pursues remorseful relishments. "A Little Pitty" is one of the more quirky tunes; revolved with snappy soundscapes, traditional tempos of salubrious subjugation & remarkable musicianship…making this one splendidly tasteful - progressively technical techniques of primitive speciality.

"No Surprise" is an anthemic; borderline foundation of punchline portrayal, vivid variety & organic substance – still capturing captivating lyricism & enjoyably entertaining instrumentation…efficiently establishing uniquely unparalleled rhythms. Overall concluding "Back From The Dead" with the finale song: "Home"; I am compelled to say that KING LEGBA & THE LOAS certainly outdone themselves with this one, if you are looking for something interesting and new - this here band will sort you out for half an hour.
